Honestly I trust chinese/taiwan corporations lesser than Gugl... However if this will benefits some Linux stacks for any reason we will thanks Mr President for his childish commercial war against China...

@Daniel Yeah, in general I'd agree, given that that even though they have what might appear to be privately owned businesses, the government technically owns them all... but the more I actually researched the Huawei claims the more I'm certain that they are pretty legit. I really trust them as much as I'd trust Dell or HP, whom iirc have all have all had cases of installing some sort of malware/phone home bs at some point over the years - and any US company could just as easily have state-sponsored malware installed given the closed-source and downright suspicious nature of the hardware from Intel (and AMD too if I'm not mistaken). I just assume it all has shit-ware on it at the the hardware level and do what I can to mitigate it... but out-of-band stuff is rather tricky to mitigate :\ If you want a machine with something newer than like core-duo you pretty much have to just assume the worst, haha.



 
Are there any VERIFIABLE sources that show Huawei has backdoor/spyware installed on their devices? Aside from the Intel stuff, like ME, that's on nearly every modern computer and certainly isn't a China-related issue. I'm not being facetious, I really just don't see any articles or anything stating any facts here, just that Trump decided to say they (and other Chinese companies) are bad guys... I must be missing something, though.

I've heard the argument that these are Chinese companies and that technically Chinese government controls all Chinese companies... but I mean is there really any proof the Huawei has done anything? This all seems like yet another USA false flag tactic to me. The risk posed merely from a government POSSIBLY intervening in a company is the same risk posed by any US company. If the NSA subpoenas a US company to do something they do it and shut their mouths about it. This HAS been documented in the past.

false flag issue originating from the US

yes that's what I meant hence my (hopefully) satiric tone. :-)

I seen this and though you'd laugh about it ...
